Forged in Fire

Sarah Jane Beauhall, the blacksmith turned dragon slayer, has it all figured out—little things like dealing with the political intrigue of dragons who secretly run our world, and learning to wield the magic that she has been given by none other than Odin, who has been fighting the dragons for millennia. And then there is the matter of coming to terms with who she is…and how to build a life with her partner, Katie.

All these things are forced into the background however when a magic-wielding serial killer starts prowling the Pacific Northwest. And all of his victims have ties to Sarah.

Sarah must unravel the web she finds closing around her as a powerful necromancer and a crazed blood cult known as the Dragon Liberation Front work to tear apart everything she holds dear.

About Me

I’m a teller of tall tales. Whether I’m sharing stories of dirigible crews on alien planets, mutant bunnies on a derelict generation ship, or a young urban blacksmith struggling to understand a hidden world of magic and dragons; I strive to create characters that are so real and emotionally impactful that you want to invite them home for dinner (or maybe get a restraining order to keep them away).
